Of Mountain Drives, MTV, and Marijuana Brownies

STORY BY: John Carswell
YEAR: 1983
LOCATION: Whistler, BC

John tells a story of a road trip in the spring of 1983, "back in the day when you thought nothing of traveling 1200 miles, and taking the requisite marijuana brownies". On a rainy day, he and his friends ended up in Whistler, BC, where they had intended to go skiing. They checked into the chalet, where they discovered satellite television and MTV. "There was no skiing", says John. The brownies came out, and for the next two days, they were glued to the TV. "Welcome to the 80s!" Thanks for sharing, John.
